immediate crisis. well, you go nuts, because john baner and paul ryan just proved it. they're not only ryan rhinos on the cries but they're in bed with the president ignores this constitutional crisis. mark is on the phone with us right now. what do you make of this? >> it is extremely frustrating if you're an average citizen watching this. last year when you count fiscal operating debt and unfund liabilities, it wasn't 1.2 trillion. it was 6.9 trillion being spent we don't have. and even hear something pundits circling the wagons saying this isn't a fiscal debt crisis yet. what dot we have to do become cypress or greece for people to recognize this? we have tens of trillions of dollars in unfunded entitlement obligations. even the ryan budget does nothing with respect to social security. on obamacare, in the ryan budget takes the taxes and repealing obamacare. what is happening is the complete integrity of our financial system is being called into question. we have the fed printing day and night to provide the monetary support for these fiscal policies, and to hear republicans say, th

spending cuts of their own, don't address defense. although paul ryan has entertained caps. >> people watching the show should realize our deficits grow in both plans, and ryan's plan is for progrowth. but both sides okay with the spending and both sides -- democrats-saying something about taxes. but there's $100 billion in there for a new stimulus plan, which i don't know how well that's going to fly. and then ryan keeping in the notion of appealing obamacare has to -- >> move on. >> that's not going to work at least for the next four years. so you keep it in there, maybe it's something you give up during negotiations. i think people watching the show should feel more hopeful, but to your point, the chasm, we're so far away from a deal, something i wouldn't bet on. >> neil: democrats claim their budget will slash the deficit, but testimony today seemed to contradict that. >> do the outlays in the first year of this budget exceed the outlays of last year's budget? and if so, by how much, both in dollars and percentage? do we know that? >> talking about 14 over 13, sir? >> yes. >> so $

is agreed to. >> neil: this might be as far as paul ryan gets. his budget blueprint getting the green light in the house. a plan that would balance the budget, he says in ten years. of course does not sit well with democrats. remember this? >> the so-called budget wag -- was the republican platform. >> neil: we're cutting the growth of progress. are you saying -- >> not talking about -- >> spending -- congressman, do you think cutting spending should be a goal? yes or no? >> yes, it's how you cut it, of course. >> neil: all right. the presidential candidate herman cain. what too you make of this whole debate where we stand right now? >> it shows the democrats' hypocrisy. they believe in endless spending and endless taxation. they don't want to balance the budget. at least the ryan budget balances for the tenth year, and then from that point going forward. they don't want to balance the budget. and here's why -- >> neil: you know, you're a businessman. i'm sure you didn't do balanced budgets much beyond a couple of years, but ten years, i mean, really? >> i would agree with you.

administration trying to draw it back. paul ryan wants to rescind the whole healthcare program and start fresh, but that's unlikely. so given that distinct possibility, what are we left with? >> well, i'm not as pessimistic as you are. i think there is just a slight chance that maybe some people who have pushed this thing forward, can stop for a moment and instead of thinking about themselves and their own political agenda and their own political future, think about the good of the people and the good of america. i think there's still that slight possibility. it doesn't seem great, i admit, but it's possible, and it's something we should work toward. assuming that doesn't occur, we need be looking at all the legal possibilities that exist in order to save us from this financial disaster, which is pouring fuel on the fire which is the incredible debt that continues to pile up day-by-day, which some people don't think is even a problem. >> neil: you were one of the first in the medical community to say these are enter linked. that got you invited to cpac, where you quickly became one of th
